“Girls Gone Wild” goes bankrupt

Mar 1 2013, 10:20am CST | by

Officials with Girls Gone Wild said filing for bankruptcy will not affect their international or domestic operations. The company said frivolous law suits prompted the filing of the bankruptcy.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – “Girls Gone Wild” is now “Girls Gone” bankrupt.

Known for its racy videos of college-age women, often intoxicated, baring it all and sometimes having sex, the “Girls Gone Wild” company has declared bankruptcy. Founder of GGW Brands LLC, Joe Francis was sued by a woman for using naked pictures of her without permission. The court granted Tamara Favazza $5.8 million in damages.

In 2012, Wynn Las Vegas owner, Steve Wynn won a defamation of character and slander lawsuit against Francis to the tune of $10.3 million. A Nevada judge ruled that Francis lied by making claims that Wynn tricked gamblers.

While Francis was not mentioned in the bankruptcy case, a company official signed off on the Wynn case. The company disputes the award granted to Favazza.

A GGW official said the bankruptcy was necessitated because it was the target of frivolous legal actions. The bankruptcy filing, according to the statement, will not affect Girls Gone Wild's domestic or international business.
